A Los Angeles probate court has approved a request by Michael Jackson\'s mother to take guardianship of his three children.

Court documents show that Katherine Jackson has also petitioned to take over the children\'s estate, the value of which is unknown.

Family lawyer Londell McMillan said the family has not heard from Deborah Rowe, the biological mother of Jackson\'s two eldest children.

The singer\'s youngest son was born to a surrogate mother whose identity has never been revealed.

Jackson, who died suddenly last week, left three children, 12-year-old Michael Joseph Jackson Jr, known as Prince Michael, 11-year-old Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, and seven-year-old Prince Michael the second.
